“What Youth Is #1” – Derek Rielly

Have you seen this magazine, neither have we. Of course the advertisers have, as we are sure they are being hand delivered straight from the press to the doorsteps of all surf brands that pay for this magazine to be alive.

Where can we purchase your magazine (other then your website)?
What is your circulation (printed and paid)?
What do you pay to your writers and photographers (editorial rates)?
Why exactly did you need to bring on Danny Kwock and Troy Eckert and what do they do today for the mag?

“…create a media hothouse. What Youth is #1” – Derek Rielly (co-owner of Beach Grit which has zero advertisers – how long will it go)

Paper Stock Change for Surfer and Surfing Magazine

Both Surfer and Surfing magazine have gone from a glossy cover to a matte finish (which is more expensive).

Surfer is more like a sandpaper matte type and Surfing is more like a dull stock. On another note Quiksilver has pulled out of both magazines, but that’s a small start when your $900 million in debt.

Kelly Slater on Getting A Cover Of A Surf Magazine

Surfing Magazine ask – Does Getting A Cover Still Matter?

“Today, I still think it holds a lot of credibility to get a cover shot in the print mags. It puts your name out there and it sends a message that you’re somebody in surfing. The Surfline stuff is more accessible to people, but it comes and goes real quick. And I think you’ll find a lot of the best shots don’t go online because the photogs don’t get paid very much for them. For them, it’s like, ‘Man, I just spent all day shooting and made 35 or 50 bucks.’ I think a lot of the best shots get saved for advertisement and editorial in print mags. It’s an interesting question: What’s more important for a young surfer’s career: a magazine cover or 20,000 new followers on Instagram? I think the cover for their career and the 20,000 followers for their ego.” – Kelly Slater

Surfline cover shot pays $30

Surfing Magazine cover shot pays $900

“The Berrics buys the skateboard mag, what the fuck, oh shit, for low to, like boot leg dvd low in the parking lot, some of it’s godzilla then the rest of it’s a family sex tape, oh well that only proves one thing… somebody is still reading it.” – Gary Rogers from Skateline
